    Dick Rayburn Cast in
'School for Scandal
The world of make-believe is
nothing new for Dick Rayburn, jun
ior in speech, who will appear in the
University Theatre presentation of
“School for Scandal,” starting De
cember 3. He has roles in five
University productions, and has
just been initiated into National
Collegiate Players.
Perhaps the “heaviest” role that
Dick has played was that of Mich
ael James in “Playboy of the West
ern World.”
"To make me look solid,” he con
fided, “I had to wear three thick
cotton pads with fourteen yards of
muslin wrapped around them. It
- was very difficult to breath, and I
had to say lines, too.”
But overcoming difficulties is
new for this veteran thespian. Af
ter his experiences on tour with
“Dover Road” last year, Dick will
be prepared for anything, when
School for Scandal hits the road in
January. “When we played Junc
tion City,” he reminisced, "we had
curtain trobule. It would close, all
right, but would immediately jerk
about a third of the way open again.
It required split-second timing to
get off the stage without being
School for Scandal was written
in the 18th century and has been
acclaimed by every type of audi
ence since then. The stage settings
and costumes for the production
are a work of art, but the lines are
especially difficult to memorize, be
cause of the unusual wording.
“The play is a sort of satire,”
Dick commented. “It is a brisk,
light comedy of situation.” He is
cast in the role of Joseph Surface,
a smug, conceited hypocrite, and
the villian of the play.
“School for Scandal,” under the
direction of Mrs. Ottilie T. Seybolt,
opens a one-week run on December

Mueller: X~ray
to Alter Future?
Descendants of many generations
hence may be born with permanent
hereditary deficiencies and ailments
brought about by present X-ray
treatments of certain diseases, Dr.
H. J. Muller, Nobel prize winner in
medicine, told students last night
at Chapman hall.
On a tour covering a number of
colleges and universities in the
United States, Dr. Muller presented
the results of important investiga
tions he has been making.
He explained that the damage to
be expected from the X-ray treat
ments is of the same kind as that
wrought by radiation from an at
om-bomb explosion, though not in
the same degree, and referred fo
high frequency radiation impinging
on the reproductive tissues as the
only outside influence found this far
which affects heredity to any great
Hereditary changes—almost al
ways unfavorable ones—are pro
duced either by affecting individual
genes or by breaking apart whole
chromosomes, the fragments of
which may subsequently reunite in
ways that are not to the advantage
of later generations, he said.
Dr. Muller is a professor of zool
ogy at Indiana university. He spoke
under the auspices of Sigma Xi, na
tional scientific research society.

Yeh, but it takes time
and I need money!
Sincerely, we’re for every college student
finishing his education. Do it if you possibly
can. But, many students start out, and through
unforeseen circumstances find themselves out

It is you students who find yourselves in this
position, of having to earn money and become
self-supporting in shorter length of time, we
may be able to help.
Aviation, today, offers you a prosperous
future career with great opportunities and pos
sibility of advancement to positions of respon
sibility and more money in a shorter time. For
